Meet the Makers: Contemporary Book Artists

In celebration of the NEGBW’s 40th Anniversary exhibition, the Boston Athenæum is hosting a virtual panel discussion called Meet the Makers: Contemporary Book Artists.

Join artists Erin Fletcher, Nancy Leavitt, and Julie Stackpole as they explore what it means to make and collect books in the twenty-first century with Curator of Rare Books and Head of Special Collections John Buchtel. All three artists have work featured in 40 Years: Celebrating the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers, on view at the Athenæum through August 7, 2021. Their work can also be found in the Athenæum’s Special Collections alongside historic and contemporary fine bookbindings, artists’ books and manuscripts by local, national, and international makers.

This event is free for Athenæum members and Virtual Event Season Pass holders and $5 for the public.
